Oil Services Companies Can’t Catch a Break in Brazil

Brazilian (NYSE:EWZ) authorities say oil from an offshore spill associated with a Japanese-operated platform has arrived at beaches in Rio de Janeiro. The episode is another blow to Brazil’s plans to allow large-scale deep-water drilling off its coast.

Some 3,000 barrels of oil spilled into the ocean in early November at a deep-water well drilled by U.S. oil company Chevron (NYSE:CVX). Last week Brazilian federal prosecutors filed a lawsuit for around $11 billion against Chevron and oil rig operator Transocean (NYSE:RIG) in response to the spill . The civil suit also seeks to end the companies’ operations in Brazil.
